WILMINGTON, N.C. and PHOENIX, Ariz.– Mobility providers are being recognized this week for their support of those with physical disabilities. National franchiser 101 Mobility has received Special Employer Recognition during the 2013 Disability Employment Awareness Month Awards. Kelly Mercer, a web developer and graphic designer for 101 Mobility who is hearing impaired, received an Outstanding Employee plaque during the event. “Because of Kelly, we are able to put out almost three websites a week,” said Joel Brenner, senior vice president of franchise operations and marketing, in a press release. “She’s an important asset to our team.” … On Friday, Oct. 25, Vantage Mobility International will sponsor the Muscular Dystrophy Association’s (MDA) annual barbecue at the Miracle League of Arizona, which hosts and facilitates adaptive baseball games. “The Muscular Dystrophy Association has a very mission-rich relationship with VMI and appreciates the many partnership opportunities such as the MDA Muscle Walk and Show of Strength that support the programs and services we provide to our registered families,” said Marilyn Hardy, healthcare services coordinator for MDA.
